Reviews and Testimonials

IJMMME belongs to a class of professional journals covering a wide range of important aspects of manufacturing, materials science and mechanical engineering. From its inception in 2011, it has proved to be a high-quality scientific journal which disseminates the results of the newest investigations and provides communication between scientists and manufacturers over the world. Undoubtedly IJMMME should be of interest to scientists of different fields – from aerodynamics, robotics, material science, tribology to bio- and nano-mechanics. The wide range of specializations of this journal is a serious advance because the reader can now use a single source instead of several narrowly-specialized journals. The journal is managed by a solid international team of scientists and led by a renowned expert having high scientific citation rank. In short, I can recommend this journal to scientists, engineers, students, in a word - to all who want and need to be at the frontier of current research and manufacturing.
